Mrs. Hoggenmuller asks her class to come up with a list of life lessons, so Olivia explains what she finds important in life.  Her own life lessons include: be colorful, always say the magic words, don’t be afraid to fall down, be yourself, etc.  As Olivia gives each life lesson she explains how she applies it to her life.    

This is typical cute Olivia.  The life lessons are fun little positive ideas for approaching life.  The illustrations are bright and Olivia has spunk.
